In March 2022, Amazon acquired MGM Studios and now, according to Deadline, a reboot of the iconic RoboCop franchise is in development.
The project includes both a movie and television series, with details still being kept under wraps. However, it appears that the future holds a significant amount of RoboCop content for fans of the franchise.
According to the report, RoboCop is being considered for both film and TV adaptations, with the possibility of a TV series coming first.
Amazon is actively seeking top-tier creators who have expressed interest in adapting specific intellectual properties from MGM, with an eye towards potentially bringing their projects to life.
In addition to scouting outside talent, Amazon Studios is also exploring its in-house roster to identify potential stars and directors for the RoboCop movie and series.
RoboCop has graced the small screen before, having made his television debut in 1994 after the release of the initial trilogy of films. The TV series starred Richard Eden in the titular role.
The most recent RoboCop project to gain attention was a planned movie titled RoboCop Returns, with Abe Forsythe (Little Monsters) set to direct. However, with Amazon now at the helm of the MGM property, the status of that project is unclear.
Regardless, Amazon has full control of the RoboCop franchise and seems eager to bring new life to the character through both film and TV adaptations.
